Goodbye, Seessel's

Posted By on Fri, Sep 2, 2011 at 2:55 PM

The Kroger/Schnucks news reminded me of an excellent story written by Simone Wilson in 2002, recording the last day of Seessel's.

From the story:

11:50 a.m. In the Truse store, the only check-out counter that remains open is the express line: 15 items or less.

"Attention, Seessel's shoppers. We'll close in approximately five minutes. Come back and see us when we reopen on Wednesday at 9 a.m. as Schnucks. Thank you for shopping at Seessel's." One more frozen pizza goes through the scanner.
